Monoclonal gammopathies

  • János Jákó


This chapter summarizes the experience of the last 25 years in the field the monoclonal gammopathies. This malignant proliferation of plasma cells is accompanied by high plasma (and fluid) levels of a homogeneous protein with normal structure (at least the existing available methods fail to reveal any pathological changes). This protein being a marker of the malignant plasma cells is a monoclonal immunoglobulin. At present the available literature in this field comprises thousands of volumes. Not only individual researchers, but large scientific research centers are studying monoclonal gammopathies. Compared to this extensive basic research, patients with monoclonal gammopathies are followed up and treated at only few clinics; therefore, the case records and the patients’ data acquisition is insufficient.
